Mirko Saviane, a self-taught photographer, has always been interested in the arts. He started out with painting, but eventually concentrated on photography, particularly street photography. His series, shot in the island of Burano in Italy are filled with bright splashes of colour and striking shadows. Each element plays a vital role in creating a cohesive, well-balanced photograph. “I’m attracted to silhouettes and shadows; this characterises my photographic language in general but it especially apparent in this project,” Saviane explains.
